Fall Fever Wardrobe Haul!

My world has been super busy and I've been a bit under the weather, but I'm feeling better and I'm excited to share the pieces I've purchased for this season with you all! I'm calling it my "fall haul" because I've been collecting various pieces since around August, but just really started pulling them out.

So let's dig in, shall we...

 Look #1 
  Leopard sheath dress - The Limited
Red MK pumps - Dillards (similar)
Black quilted clutch - Dots (old)
Gold collar necklace - Dillards
Nothing's better than a knee length sheath dress to add to your wardrobe, especially one with sleeves! Very versatile because the feel of the dress can be switched up by wearing it under blazers and cardigans, adding tights and boots or simply switching up the heels and jewelry. 
Look #2 
 Faux leather peplum top - Target
Leopard pink skirt - The Limited
 Red MK pumps - Dillards
Black quilted clutch - Dots (old)
Gold collar necklace - Dillards
Great quality faux leather piece from Target! Peplum is a sweet style, so making it black leather just gives it some bite! (I would love to see it done it white too...) 

Look #3 
 Animal print top - Forever 21
Hunter green harem pants - Nordstrom Rack
Cognac suede bootie - INC for Macys (old)
Yellow mini satchel - Phillip Lim for Target (sold out)
Gold link necklace - JCPenney (old)

I love wearing stylish pieces that are comfortable, like slouchy tops and sweaters and loose fitting pants. This kind of look can even be dressed up a little more by adding a blazer in a heavier fabric, like tweed, and a chunky scarf.

Look #4 
 Gray faux leather zip top - Forever 21
Black coated skinnies - The Limited
Suede buckle peep toe booties - BCBG (old)
Black quilted clutch - Dots (old)

Coated skinnies offer a nice sleek look, like a cigarette pant, and are more substantial than jeggings, which is perfect for the cooler temps. Short sleeves can be layered over long sleeve tissue tees to add a layer of warmth. A striped print long tee can tone down the "bad girl" feel this look gives off as well.

Look #5 
 Orange top with faux leather - Nordstrom Rack
Black coated pencil skirt - The Limited
Suede buckle peep toe booties - BCBG (old)
Black quilted clutch - Dots (old)
Gold link necklace - JCPenney (old)

 The black coating and shiny leather provide some edge for this look, adding a blazer and tights can make it office friendly.

Look #6

 Faux leather dress - The Limited
Cream boyfriend blazer - Lauren Conrad for Kohls
Red MK pumps - Dillards
Gold clutch - Cosmopolitan for JCPenney
Gold collar necklace - Dillards

Perfect dress for date night or girls night, and the girlish A-line shape can make the leather more office friendly with a blazer, cardigan or turtleneck paired with low key pumps.

Look #7
Satin cobalt top - Mango for JCPenney
Polka dot pencil skirt - The Limited
Lionhead necklace - The Limited (old)
Red MK pumps - Dillards
Gold clutch - Cosmopolitan for JCPenney

Cobalt is one of the on trend colors of the season. A lighter weight satin top is seasonless and adds some texture dimension when layered under heavy knit cocoon cardigans.
Look #8 
  Cream knit sweater - Old Navy
Denim vest - The Limited
Olive harem pants - Forever 21
Gold snakeskin pump - Jessica Simpson
Yellow mini satchel - Phillip Lim for Target (sold out)
Turquoise plate necklace - Dillards

A cream lightweight knit sweater is wonderful for chillier seasons, works great with jeans, skirts or dress pants and adds warmth without bulk. Metallics, like leopard print, work like neutrals, and can be interchanged with everything from dark hues like Bordeaux (I hate the word 'oxblood') and hunter green to your brights like citron and fuchsia.

Although it was totally unintentional, it easy to see the trends I fell in love with this season - namely leather and leopard with a dose of metallic! The weather here has been beautiful and still pretty warm, and I'm excited to start integrating these pieces into my wardrobe.

I also want to take a moment to give a HUGE thank you to my cousin, Kelly, for lending me her photography skills to help me pull this post together! I'm really looking forward to working with you more!

On that note, I hope I've provided you ladies with some inspiration or styling ideas and now I'm off to pack for a work trip!

You divas make it fabulous week!
